    I know this might sound stupid, but my glitter pots aren’t loose glitter, so I can’t figure out how I’m supposed to ‘sprinkle’ it over my nails. It’s completely solid. If there’s some trick I don’t know, I’d appreciate some help! :)

      Hi Shannon – There is a film over the pot, you can remove :)

    Will this glitter be as difficult to remove as the glitter polishes? I loved them for the summer but they were so hard to get back off! I want to try the glitter pots, but I’m scared. :)

    Apply a clear coat of nail polish for your base, that way the glitter will come off more easily.

      I find this also helps to avoid staining with darker polishes
